  • DMITRY GRUDSKY ― Returning for his sixth year as a Heart artist, Dmitry is a skilled artist who is passionate about creating art for public spaces. He brings more than 30 years of successful practice to his art designs. Dmitry holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Tashkent Art Institute in Russia, where he was exposed to a broad range of artistic styles, building on a strong foundation in classical Western European art traditions with stylistic infusions from Asia Minor. He likes to refer to his art as “mirror that reflects the attributes of each individual site, enhancing its public use and enjoyment,” which is why he hopes people view his art as a multidimensional poem expressing the feelings of people and the feel of place. The intensive training exposed him to a broad range of artistic styles. He uses mixed media and blends ancient Byzantine mosaic techniques with stained glass, mural painting and relief components in pieces that are visually stunning, strongly sculptural, and surprisingly practical. While living in Russia, Dmitry primarily worked on large-scale public art works. Since immigrating to the Bay Area, Dmitry has combined artwork with teaching. He has created art for community projects, commercial offices, schools and a church as well as for private collectors. He instructs adults in a variety of art forms such as mosaic, wire sculpture, ceramics, painting and collage.

  • RICK KITAGAWA ― Rick is an award-winning visual artist, storyteller, arts educator, and nationally-ranked skeeball roller, who has worked with the likes of Facebook, GAP, Apple, Adobe, Savoir Faire, Jacquard, and KRINK. Both his visual art and written work centers around horror, feminism, and mythology, and the intersections between these themes and their complex relationship with the world we live in. Colorful and figure-dominated, his visual work serves to highlight the female form, balancing sex appeal with danger; innocence with loss. Rick’s series of Hearts were inspired by the geographic changes San Francisco has undergone, starting from a wave-beaten, pre-colonial sandbar, “Past,” to the building of the Golden Gate bridge and the development of SF as an international hub of development, “Present,” to the skyscrapers and modernized big city that has been rebuilt by emerging technology, “Future.” Says Rick, “San Francisco has been an inspirational place to live throughout history, and the abstracted interpretation of its geography through history is my way of trying to invoke the spirit of each era”.

  • FRANCIS LI ― Born in Santa Rosa, Francis applied to be involved with the “Hearts in San Francisco” project in order to continue to explore electronics and technology as a medium for art, while giving back to the local community. The construction of the three hearts in his heart series, with their 3D printed shells and embedded electronics, reflects the influence of technology in the city while paying tribute to the prominent maker/DIY community here. Drawing upon the past/present/future city theme of this year’s mini hearts series, one heart uses 60s inspired color palettes reflecting the city’s role in history with the Summer of Love, another has a rainbow pattern that is a tribute to the LGBTQ community, and the last has a faceted shape to highlight the 3D technology inherent in its construction, along with an animation that represents networking in its technological forms of data on the Internet and communication between people through social networks. Francis, an interaction designer and software engineer, is the cofounder and CTO of DohJe, a company that provides an innovative recognition and retention platform for healthcare, aiming to improve healthcare through gratitude.
